If your office generates a lot of letters, this is the tip for you! This will show you how to store common addresses that you use often in AutoText entries. You will then only need to input the first name or surname of the contact you need, press F3, and the address will be inserted at the top of your letterhead. You all know I love to save time and keystrokes and hopefully, you do as well!
AutoText is still there in the latest versions of Word, but it is now called called Building Blocks. You can add an address as a traditional AutoText entry by following these steps:
- Select your address.
- Click Alt+F3. Word displays the Create New Building Block dialog box.
The Create New Building Block dialog box.
- Replace the contents of the Name field with the name you want assigned to the address. For instance, use the last name of the person or the person’s title.
- Use the Gallery drop-down list to choose AutoText.
- Click on OK.
